Default Favorite deer bullets

I'm curious as to what everyone's favorite deer hunting bullets are -- and why it's your favorite. And what kind of country do you hunt in -- woods where the shots are closer in or open country where the shots are longer? Bajaye

I like the Winchester Ballistic Silver Tip (basically the same as the Nosler BT). I've used 'em for years, the group tight out of my guns, and they put deer down quick.

I like the bullets my rifle likes. I've had rifles that preferred Speer, Hornady and Remington "Green Box". Mostly I don't have any use for premium bullets because my rifles are all of moderate velocity. I think the .260 shoots the fastest. [8D]

10 gauge slugs,They knock the dee down like a lead ballon falling 1000 feet. I hunt thick areas only.And I never have to track a deer

I shoot Partitions and Sierra Pro-Hunters but the Ballistic tips are my favorite deer bullet. My shooting is all open country. 200 yards is about average.
